The LibriVox Free Audiobook Collection

LibriVox - founded in 2005 - is a community of volunteers from all over the world who record public domain texts: poetry, short stories, whole books, even dramatic works, in many different languages. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain in the USA and available as free downloads on the internet. If you are not in the USA, please check your country's copyright law before downloading.

Please visit the LibriVox website where you can search for books that interest you. You can search or browse by title, author, genre, language or reader (and, though not yet fully developed, by keyword), and you can look for all solo recordings by a particular reader, or their contributions to group recordings.

Our goal is to make all public domain books, in any language, available as free audiobooks. Would you like to help us to reach our goal? We always welcome new readers, prooflisteners, cover artists, or simply suggestions for books to read.

If you would appreciate suggestions for books to listen to, check out our monthly feature the staff picks where on the first day of each month, 10 books from the catalog are highlighted. You can find the list for this and the previous months on our blog.

For more information, or to volunteer, please visit LibriVox.org.
